For Lease: 1.8 acres in Klamath County

Description

My family and I own 11 acres of mostly wooded riverside property at the end of a long dirt road, surrounded mostly by national forest yet only a couple miles from the small town of Chiloquin. On the property is a house and an RV, but they are available for rent on Airbnb year-round because we live in Alaska during the school year and the tourist attraction of Crater Lake attracts guests to the Chiloquin area year-round.  I have a caretaker & housekeeper who frequent the property several days a week.

Alongside the river I have a rectangular 1.8 acre flat treeless plot of land with remnants of old fencing around it. I believe previous owners of my property either farmed or kept livestock there. It just sits vacant now, but I thought it would be more beautiful and an attraction to our guests if it was cultivated and brought to life. Perhaps the farmer would be interested in offering tours, tastings, sales, or education to guests. We have a small tractor that could be rented for small projects, but since our guests come seeking quiet nature I would not want frequent use of heavy machinery.

I do not have housing to provide a farmer and I know that county regulations prohibit the building of a permanent dwelling without permits (and who knows what else).  I’m also unsure of water rights, but there are also two wells with pumps on the property and occasional use of electricity could be arranged (but if you chose not to use either of these the lease would be cheaper). There is also a nearby state park with a free RV dump station. Parking your own small mobile dwelling or building a small off-grid dwelling (each running on solar, not a noisy generator) could work or there is housing for rent in Chiloquin.  I do know that building a ten by ten foot structure (not used for living in) does not require permits, but if water rights or building permits were to be pursued and paid for by the farmer I would be willing to consent and sign necessary documents.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

It is now a vacant lot and preferably we'd like to see it filled with vegetation of some kind, gardens or trees or possibly a horse or two.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

unsure


Current Use

vacant


Available Water / Irrigation

Unsure about water rights, but land is riverfront and there are 2 working wells with pumps.


Soil Type / Quality

unsure


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

We do own a pretty new (but small) tractor, but it is not always available. It could be rented for small projects. I would prefer little use of heavy machinery due to guests staying at the Airbnb seeking quiet nature.


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

Unsure of water rights, surrounding area is mostly national forest. Road to the property is a long bumpy dirt road.
